Yard of the Month Information

The City of Guttenberg in conjunction with the Umbrella Arts Committee established the Yard of the Month Award to recognize Guttenberg city residents who have improved or maintained their yard and whose yard has a positive aesthetic appeal.  The award is intended to inspire others to take pride in their yard and to improve the overall quality of life in Guttenberg.

Umbrella Arts members will act as judges using the general guidelines outlined below to select the winner of the yard of the month award.  The final decision will be based on evidence of the homeowner’s pride and the contribution the yard makes to Guttenberg’s community appeal.  The program runs from June through September each year.
